One thing about wedding planning which will quickly become apparent are the enormous range of small tasks which must be completed, which can be very easy to forget. One of those tasks is gift buying for the groomsmen, which is a lovely way to show your appreciation and to build a sense of togetherness with your friends. Weddings aren’t cheap of course, which is why it is important that you look to spend money only on what is absolutely necessary. In terms of gifts for the groomsmen, this doesn’t have to hurt your wallet too much, and here are some ideas to consider.
A personalised gift is a lovely way for you to show your appreciation to your groomsmen, and a wallet is something which they are likely to keep and cherish for a long time to come. Gifts for this special day should be something which are going to be kept and used, and that is where this particular idea comes up trumps.
Hip Flask and Funnel
The hip flask comes in and out of fashion but the reality is that it is a classic and timeless piece which will always be of use to your groomsmen. You can fill up a hip flask with whichever spirit you like, and will be perfect for day’s out and perhaps even the wedding itself, for some Dutch courage. Make sure that if you do buy a hip flask, you ensure that there is a small funnel with it, to make pouring that much easier and ensure that there is no waste.
We often consider that robes are worn by the ladies after a spa session, but the reality is that the boys like a little bit of comfort too, which is why a high quality robe could be a great gift for the groomsmen. These robes offer a real sense of class and style, perfect for relaxing after a long, hot shower.
Toiletry kits really don’t have to cost the Earth, and they can be a great gift idea for your groomsmen. A simple kit will feature a body wash, shampoo, deodorant and some face cream, all tied together in a classy little bag. This is one of those gifts which you didn’t realize how much you needed it until you receive it, which is why you can be sure that everyone will be happy with this choice.
Even something as simple as a pair of sunglasses could be a great idea for your groomsmen, and these can even be used on your wedding day. There is a temptation to buy everyone the same color and style here, but you may actually be better off mixing things up. Giving each groomsman their own set of shades is an original and fun idea which they are going to love.
These are just some ideas which you can consider which most certainly won’t put too big a dent in your wallet.
